Srila Prabhupada the name is more used than you think ! Who is the real Srila Prabhupada ?

His Divine Grace Mahāmaṇḍaleshwar Mahant Kṛṣṇa Balarām Swāmī Prabhupāda May be an image of 1 person and text that says '"God is the shelter of all. He sends many obsta- cles and inconveniences to those who wish for shelter under him, in order to test their ardour and steadiness." _ Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur Prabhupada. From Shri Chait-'

Srila Prabhupada only had one Vrijabasi disciple Krsna Balarama Swami that started his own society in Vraja and he goes under the name above he is also a Mahant.Now I am sure many in ISKCON will say wait a minute why is he Prabhupada ? Prabhupada refers to AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada ..now let me tell you a story I am sure you did not know

or you might have heard this ,Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada was also given the title Srila Prabhupada as he was the most prominent link to our Sampradaya and spread Gaudiya Vaisnavism all over India with 60.000 disciples Srila Sridhara Maharaja wrote Sri Prabhupada Stava Padma a prayer to Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada, when some of Srila Prabhupadas disciple heard this prayer they also wanted to call AC Bhaktivedanta Swami for Srila Prabhupada .Srila Narayana Maharaja told us how he went to see Srila Prabhupada and asked him about the use of the name Prabhupada.Srila Prabhupada with tearful eyes said when I hear Jaya Prabhupada I think of my Gurudeva, I am representing my Guru Maharaja so I have allowed my disciples to call me Srila Prabhupada.Srila Narayana Maharaja took this back to Gaudiya math and everyone accepted that he was really the bonafide representative of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada .Srila Bhakti Pramod Puri Maharaja also explained that in Bengal since hundreds of years many Gurus where known as Prabhupada ,so no one should be bend out of shape, follower of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada will always say the title of Srila Prabhupada truely belonged to Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada and in ISKCON we will say yes but also to our Srila Prabhupada ...I hope this helps in the fight over the title Prabhupada..I saw how Gopiprana dhana das in the issue about wether Sri Advaita Acarya had a beard or not called Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada for only Bhaktisiddhanta Thakura, I found that very disrespectful, he tried to make a point Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada was really wrong about Sri Advaita Acarya having a beard so that was an offence.Neither does the sloka in Caitanya Bhagavad say He had a beard but was holding His chin not beard and Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada in this purport explained Sri Advaita acarya never had a beard , I have explained all this in my book Vaisnava Amrta I have included a pdf of Vaisnava Amrta

Have a lovely Dvadasi
